Cannot change the screen orientation on my Gateway M280 tablet PC

Whenever I push the button (hardware) on my Gateway M280 tablet PC to change the orientation from primary landscape to secondary landscape, I get the following error dialog:

[Tablet Button]

The setting you requested cannot be supported.
Open Display in Control Panel, adjust the settings, and then try to change orientation again.

I have tried selecting nearly every single setting I can in the display settings to no avail. I am at the end of my rope and the ATI folks who created the drivers for this laptop's video card don't have a driver update to help, apparently.

I'm on Windows XP for Tablet PCs (2002) SP3.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated! I have the same problem with a Dell Latitude XT running Windows XP and started with update To SP3

Ok so I had the same problem on my tablet cx2000. Did you download any of the service packs from xp? If so that is what is causing the problem. Your computer will work fine without it so you just need to de-install it. Go to your add and remove programs and delete the service pack. Once your computer reboots then it will be fine!

Rotate screen back to normal


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish.

My laptop screen has turned on it's side, how do i put it right


A tablet PC is expected to change orientation of the screen if you put the laptop in Tablet Mode.
If all hardware and software are in working order (correctly configured) you should be able to change screen orientation
  1. By pressing the rotation button. I can't say where it is since you did not specify the Toshiba Model.
  2. Or you press CTRL ALT ( UpArrow, DownArrow, Left Arrow, Right Arrow). CTRL ALT UpArrow will restore the screen to the default orientation in tab let PC Mode.

Can't change the orientation of the screen


Hi,

By orientation i take it your screen is either upside down or sideways on?

If that's the case then hold down Ctrl and Alt and use the cursor/arrow keys to rotate the screen back to normal. This will no doubt be the cursor up key.


Regards.

Orientating my Screen after I switch into tablet mode.


You can press the Orientation Button located in the right bottom corner of screen. It is marked with two arrows following each other in a circle.

Moreover, you can set as default the screen orientation you desire in Tablet Properties.

Also, remove the battery for 10 seconds and reinsert. This will enable auto orienting of screen.
